European Junior Champion Tom Derbyshire began his transition into the senior ranks of British Swimming this summer as he debuted at the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.
The distance freestyle went in both the 800m and 1500m Freestyle events and only just missed the finals of both. The Championships allowed Derbyshire to experience a senior international meet and the conditions and pressures that accompany it.
Derbyshire, who trains at British Swimming's National Centre in Bath under the guidance of coach David McNulty, made two trips to the British Championship podium in the spring of 2018 and claimed silver in both the 800m and 1500m Freestyle events.
At the LEN European Juniors in Hodmezovasarhely, Hungary in 2016 he Derbyshire claimed the continental title in the 1500m Freestyle, then followed it up with a second place finish and silver in the 800m Freestyle
In 2015 he represented Team GB at the European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan and finished eighth in his main event the 1500m Freestyle.
